6:34pm
think of meningitis right away if the patient presented primarily with those kinds of symptoms. >> 35 cases of fungal meningitis have been reported and five people have died. the outbreak may get much worse still with 75 hospitals in 23 states having received the contaminated drug since july. the conflict in syria is getting worse. much worse now that hostilities are spilling across international borders. cbs news reporter monica has more. >> reporter: turkey's parliament approved military action against syria but said it's not declaring war on its neighbor. the government can now send troops or warplanes across the border to attack syrian targets if turkey feels threatened. the turkish military fired ar tilley six miles into syrian territory for a second day. it's a direct response to this mortar attack. a rocket launched from syria hit a turkish town killing two
6:35pm
